“Almighty God, Who created this good land upon which we have established our heritage:

Grant that we may prove to be a people mindful of Your favor and glad to do Your will.

Give wisdom to our Governor and all who administer authority here. Fill them with a love of

truth and a spirit of unity.

We pray to You for the integrity of our State, the success of our schools, the fertility of our

fields, the prosperity of our businesses, and the preservation of all who serve.

May Your grace be upon those who labor in this House and all who come within.

Grant that we may know the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who lives and reigns with You, in

the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God now and forever.

Amen.”

Whereas, Local school boards recognize that all children can be successful learners, especially when education is tailored to individual needs of the child; and

Whereas, Local school board members are exceptional people, who have committed themselves to this duty by governing school districts and advancing student achievement in the schools and communities in which they serve; and

Whereas, During this month, we join the Michigan Association of School Boards, Michigan Department of Education, and local school districts and community organizations to recognize and raise awareness of the countless efforts and contributions of local school boards and school board members throughout Michigan; now, therefore, be it
